Things are settling down and I have a new laptop. And 3 days off. (Really off. No classes, no shifts.) I've got a clogging cold, but I'm taking it slow. The biggest items on the agenda for today?
- drinking tea 
- drinking hot ginger
- drinking water
- reading 160 pages for rhetoric
- baking cookies to console us and the tenants
- finishing this sock:

I think I'm getting better at coping. 

Before all the robbery drama, I had been meaning to show you yet another two images of knotted red yarn. This is something I finished during post-Thanksgiving video games at Tim's parents' house this past weekend:

I promise that subsequent knitting projects will be in purple or green.

Have a beautiful weekend!

P.S. Tim, Alice, Kathy, Peter, Carolin, Jim, Elliot--if you're reading this, Thank you.


  1. So glad of your update... and that you've got the new laptop already. Those socks look promising, and the zip-purse is divine (you should put some in your shop!) xx

  2. Thanks! I'm so grateful that things are returning to normal.

    I have been considering making things to sell again--I just don't want to put ridiculous pressure on myself like I did last time, turning what should have been fun and spontaneous into a chore.

  3. What a wonderful title for a blog!

    How did you arrive at it... oh perhaps it says in your profile... which I haven't read yet.

    Anyway, hope your cold is better and that you now have a new laptop.


  4. Thank you! 'Feed the long neck' is the title of one of my own poems. I liked the sound and ambiguity of it, so I used it for the blog as well.


Speak your piece.
